Ellon parkrun # 42 – 03/09/2016

The run

This week there were 83 runners, of whom 25 were first timers and 20 recorded new Personal Bests. Representatives of 10 different athletics clubs took part.  There were 10 volunteers.

Another warm morning at Ellon.  Once the sun came out from behind the clouds it really heated up.

We had quite a large number of first timers today.  I think we had quite a few visitors from Hazlehead which was cancelled today for the Dandara races.  We also had some from Aberdeen and Camperdown (Dundee) that we knew about.

Congratulations to Ross Chalmers for completing his tenth parkrun and becoming one of the very first Ellon juniors to achieve his 10 t-shirt.

Pre-event setup

We are looking for more people to help with pre-event setup.  At the moment Roy and I are sharing the duties but we'd like at least one more in the rotation.  If you are local to Ellon and run regularly then maybe you can help.  It consists of putting the signs up in and around Gordon Park and then taking them in after.  The marshal and/or tail runner will very often help tidy up.  It's easier if a few people share this role so they can learn where the signs go.

With this role you get a volunteer credit and you get to run.  Email us at ellonhelpers@parkrun.com if you are interested.  Even once a month would be a great help.



Many thanks to this week's heroes
